Here's what I did. I don't know if it was right or wrong, but I think I
made the ethical choice.
Our support from the CO was iffy, so we (Leaders, boys and parents) decided
to leave. I looked at all the equipment and put things into one or four
1. Things that had been with the Troop for years,
2. Things that the CO paid for directly,
3. Things I and other "current" leaders had scrounged up for the Troop,
4. Things that my current boys and parents had paid for, by fundraisers or
5. Things we were not sure about.
Things in categories 1, 2, & 5 were left with the CO. We took the rest.
The CO had the basic equipment for a new Troop if they ever get serious
about scouting and we had a few things to start with at our new CO. (We
still couldn't camp for almost a year.)
I hope that no one thinks I am a terrible person, but I get paid for making
the tough decisions. (They told me that the check was in the mail.)
